With this Catalan wine tasting you will discover the terroir that makes Catalan wines so special and unique.
Travel round Catalonia via its wines, vineyards and wineries.
From north to south, east to west, with this Catalan wine tasting you'll discover the terroir that makes Catalan wines so special and unique. Learn about traditional Catalan wine varieties and new trends. Each and every one of the wines you sample come from small producers who work their land using organic methods and with care and respect.
La Festival is a welcoming wine shop from in the Gràcia neighbourhood, where they understand wine and you'll never have to be embarrassed about any limitations in knowledge you might have. They are big fans of quality bulk wine, and have ten taps featuring organic, natural and biodynamic varieties from different terroirs in Catalonia. In addition, the store features a selection of bottled wines from over 500 different winemakers. They're not looking so much for customers as for friends who want to be part of their wine festival.
